Screen candidates with the highest quality questions

We have a very high focus on the quality of questions that test for on-the-job skills. Every question is non-googleable and we have a very high bar for the level of subject matter experts we onboard to create these questions. We have crawlers to check if any of the questions are leaked online. If/ when a question gets leaked, we get an alert. We change the question for you & let you know.

These are just a small sample from our library of 15,000+ questions. The actual questions on this IBM Websphere Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Deployment and Resource Binding
Application Deployment
Resource Binding
You are deploying a web application on IBM WebSphere Application Server, which uses a JDBC datasource and a JMS Queue. Below are snippets from the application's web.xml and ibm-web-bnd.xml files.

web.xml snippet:
ibm-web-bnd.xml snippet:
Assuming the JDBC datasource and JMS Queue are already correctly configured in the WebSphere Admin Console, which of the following is the required action to ensure the application deployment correctly references these resources?
A: Define JNDI names jdbc/myDataSource and jms/myQueue in the server's namespace.
B: Bind the application's JDBC datasource to jdbc/MyAppDataSource and JMS Queue to jms/MyAppQueue in the ibm-web-bnd.xml.
C: Update web.xml to reference the JNDI names jdbc/MyAppDataSource and jms/MyAppQueue.
D: Bind the resources in web.xml to the server's JDBC and JMS resources with matching names.
E: Modify the application code to reference jdbc/MyAppDataSource and jms/MyAppQueue directly.


Integrating JMS with WebSphere
Java Message Service
Application Integration
Message-Driven Beans (MDB)
You are configuring a message-driven bean (MDB) in IBM WebSphere Application Server to consume messages from a JMS queue. The MDB needs to process messages from a remote JMS provider, and you must ensure the configuration supports high availability and load balancing. Given the following pseudo code:
Considering the requirements and the given code, which of the following configurations would be most appropriate?
A: Use the default connection factory and modify the MDB to use JNDI lookup for the remote JMS provider.
B: Configure an MDB activation specification with a custom resource adapter to connect to the remote JMS provider.
C: Deploy the MDB to a WebSphere cluster and configure a JMS queue connection factory with workload management (WLM) enabled.
D: Implement a custom message listener interface instead of using the javax.jms.MessageListener.
E: Use a local JMS provider and replicate messages to the remote provider for high availability.
F: Configure the MDB with a direct IP address to the remote JMS provider instead of using JNDI names.

Test candidates on core IBM WebSphere Hiring Test topics

SCA Modules: SCA (Service Component Architecture) Modules are a key component of IBM WebSphere, providing a standardized way to develop and assemble software components into business applications. These modules enable developers to create reusable, loosely-coupled components, enhancing modularity and flexibility in application development.

WebSphere Integration: WebSphere Integration refers to the ability of IBM WebSphere to seamlessly integrate different applications, systems, and data sources. This skill is essential to ensure smooth communication and data flow between various components, enabling organizations to achieve efficient and effective business processes.

WebSphere Adaptors: WebSphere Adaptors provide the capability to connect and integrate IBM WebSphere with other third-party systems, applications, and protocols. These adaptors play a crucial role in enabling interoperability and data exchange between WebSphere and external systems, expanding the capabilities and reach of the platform.

JCA: JCA (Java Connector Architecture) is a specification that enables Java applications to interact with enterprise information systems, such as databases and message queues. JCA allows developers to connect IBM WebSphere with various backend systems, facilitating seamless integration and data access.

Integrated Solutions Console: The Integrated Solutions Console is a web-based administrative console provided by IBM WebSphere, offering a centralized interface to manage and configure the WebSphere application server. This skill is important to ensure efficient administration and monitoring of the WebSphere environment, allowing administrators to deploy applications, monitor performance, and troubleshoot issues.

Have questions about the IBM WebSphere Hiring Test?

How does pricing work?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I customize the test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up within 48 hours based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test. You can also customize a test by uploading your own questions.

Can I combine multiple skills into one test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

What roles can I use the IBM WebSphere Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

  • WebSphere Developer
  • WebSphere ESB Developer
  • WebSphere Administrator
Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?


The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
